Lauren Kinsella

One of the brightest creative sparks to come out of the contemporary jazz vocal field in a long while.

– Jazzwise

Lauren is passionate about uniting the voice within instrumental sound and blending extended vocal technique and poetry in both improvised and composed settings – which, for her, are closely linked. At the core of her work lies a deep interest in communication and the development of improvised music within new physical and stylistic territories.

Lauren Kinsella is an Irish vocalist and composer based in London. Awarded UK Vocalist of the year at the JazzFM Awards (2016), she is known as one of London cities most adventurous artists performing throughout the UK and Europe as a soloist, a bandleader, and within several cross-arts projects. She sings and composes in many outfits including her own ensemble and Snowpoet with multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. She is a passionate educator and holds a senior lecturing post at Leeds Conservatoire. Lauren Kinsella is supported by PRS for Music Foundation.

She is the featured vocalist in several recent projects including French saxophonist Julien Pontvianne’s Abhra, Turkish composer Onur Turkmenn’s ‘Sailing to Byzantium’ and Irish composer Ian Wilson’s ‘The Last Siren. Kinsella also performs in Monster Music Improv; a musical and visual theatre show for children presented by The Ark and IMC.

In the past she has been awarded the Young Musicwide Performance Award (2010), the Kenny Wheeler Prize (2013), the THSH Birmingham Jazzlines Fellowship (2015) and she was a participant on the Take 5 10th Edition with Serious. She has received commissions from BBC Radio 3 and from Marsden Jazz Festival.

Kinsella’s performance and music are reviewed worldwide and she regularly features on several radio stations including BBC Radio 3 and Radio 6, RTE Lyric FM, Jazz FM, BBC Radio Scotland, Le Bande Passante, Sverigesradio and ORF Radio. To date, she has released critically acclaimed albums on Edition Records, WideEarRecords, Diatribe and Two Rivers Records.

There’s a very approving whisper going around jazz circles – deservedly – and it’s about Lauren Kinsella.

– Max Reinhardt BBC Radio 3

Pure and slightly vulnerable yet with a determined inner strength to it Lauren Kinsella’s is a voice that soars and swoops.
